Small Project and Support Fund: Call for applications for funding

April 2019

Background

The AIDS Foundation South Africa (AFSA) has been appointed by Bread for the World (BfdW) as the “central project holder” (CPH) of the Small Project and Support Fund (SPSF). The SPSF aims to empower communities in KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape and Mpumalanga, through small local initiatives that are made up of committed and dedicated people, to participate in their own development through actions that are designed, implemented and owned by the communities themselves. The local initiatives can be structured as self-help groups; community based organizations (CBO’s); faith based organisations (FBO’s) or other small non-governmental organisations (NGO’s); or small local networks and their members working within their vicinity and context to improve the lives of the marginalised in that vicinity. The types of intervention that the SPSF will support include actions addressing social justice, food security, environmental protection and gender equality and the provision of legal or other emergency services.

AFSA therefore invites applications from any of the structures mentioned above, that are located within any of the three provinces in which the SPSF operates, to apply for funding for Component 1.The maximum contribution for the small grants is R150 000 and the duration for each supported organisation or project will be for the period May 2019 – March 2020. In addition to any grant that is made, AFSA will provide relevant capacity building particularly in terms of monitoring and reporting.
